Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's no real feel for period (the mid-'60s), and that dull Sheen psychodrama doesn't go away."
‑ , Time Out
"Emotions in this film operate on a made-for-TV level; they don't engage you."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Father and Son give the performances of their careers"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Cadence is a more modest film that never seems to reach very high, settling for superficial characterizations and an overly familiar series of circumstances."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"There is no indication that Mr. Sheen ever yelled "Cut!" when he had a chance to send one of his actors over the top."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The cast builds genuine characters out of stock situations."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Not half-bad military drama."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"A sluggish comedy of race relations from the sappy Sheens, it's instant fodder for In Living Color's satirical Wayans."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"A fine look at the racial differences of the armed forces of that era."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"Laurence Fishburne is a capable performer, but he's not asked to do much here. On the other hand, Charlie Sheen is unconvincing as his character experiences crises and moral dilemmas galore."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
